Minibus Driver  with Tirley Parish Council (Ref: 802)
 
Opportunity picture
The Village Minibus is owned and operated by Tirley Parish Council and run by a dedicated band of volunteers. We provide a friendly transport service to enable access to shops, places of recreation or attend appointments.

The village minibus provides a lifeline to those less able to get about in countryside. When a booking is received by the coordinator they will contact all of the drivers and ask whether they are able to fulfill the trip. Drivers can then chose whether they are available or not for the particular trip. The coordinator with then provide the necessary details. Volunteers are required to Collect the village minibus from Ashleworth Car Park, complete the pre-driving checks and then collect passengers as per the passenger list provided by the Minibus Coordinator. Drive the Passengers to the required destination and then return, re-fuelling the minibus completing the necessary paperwork and leaving the minibus ready for the next driver.

It is important that the drivers are punctual, smart and friendly towards the passengers. The role will benefit the driver by getting them out and about and supporting those less able to get around. The people we take in the minibus are lovely and it tends to turn into a social outing.
